Technology is Fun!

Using tablets in a classroom
Using tablets in a classroom
Shoulder to Shoulder has installed the KA Lite program in all the classrooms at our Bilingual School.  (KA Lite is the non-internet based program of the Khan Academy.)  Each classroom is equiped with a server and projector, so that the class can watch world-class educators providing math lessons.  Then, the children get to do math problems, using tablets.  They love being able to go at their own pace, as they challenge themselves, using the tablets.
We received a grant from the LearningEquity.com organization, that will allow us to expand this program into other elementary, middle, and High Schools.  So far, we have installed the technology in 7 High Schools, 2 elementary schools, and 7 middle schools.  
We are getting the children of the Frontera to be EXCITED about MATH.  Can you believe that?!
How excited are the students?  Well, at one High School, the students are so eager to get into class and get their hands on the tablets, that we had one young man actually trip over a chair, in his rush.  (Fortunately, it was a plastic chair, and no one was hurt.)  But, when was the last time you heard about a student running into a classroom to ensure that he was one of the lucky ones who had a tablet to use?!
We are also expanding into ROBOTICS.  Our Honduran Team will be competing in the 2nd Annual International Robotics Competition in Mexico City on August 16th.  See details at our "Honduras Robots" website.
